These three drops of stunning and dramatic design could be placed stitched to stretchers and hung on a wall.
Baiae three pieces of silk screen printed cotton with creamy white design on a black ground, a Roman soldier on horseback and groups of toga clad Roman men and horses 7'6" d x 3 ft 10 in or 2.3 x 1.17 w; 43 in. design repeat (almost 2 design repeats) the selvedges with A Time Present Fabric (Hull Traders).
Very good. Each length has a vertical fold line to one side. This is where the sides have been folded in to make curtains. This measures 6 in or 15 cm. There is fading on that line so this could not be let out to show the whole width. We have folded in these fold lines to show you the piece as a panel.
Hull Traders were formed in 1958 and won several awards for their fabric designs. Shirley Craven, who designed textiles for the company, also selected designs by freelance artists and oversaw the process of printing these onto fabrics. Eduardo Paolozzi, Humphrey Spender and Altea McNish were some of the designers commissioned by the company. All the designs were screen printed by hand using pigment dyes. Their aim was to produce short runs of avant-garde textiles. The fabrics were sold in their showroom off Oxford Street, London. Originally based in London they move to Trawden, Lancashire. Drummond worked for Sandersons during the 1950's. Designed wallpapers for Wall Paper Manufacturers Ltd in the 60's. Taught at the Royal College of Art for 13 years. Paints architectural watercolours.
